I think country-specific forums would be useful.  It would help nationals to find one another to organize off-line events, trade bitcoins in person, etc.

If you create a Canada forum and need a moderator I am happy to volunteer.

This seems unnecessary to me. I have not seen any posts that apply only to Canadian people, and even ones that are somehow related to Canada would not fill a page.

I agree with Bimmerhead's proposal. However I recognize that starting a regional forum will possibility open a pandora's box for moderators as many regions (of all different scales) will want one. I think that is the big consideration that must be weighed.

Actually sub-forums for many different countries, not just Canada, is what I was suggesting.  Assuming each has a moderator, I don't think it would become to unwieldy (but I really don't have a clue what I'm talking about in that last sentence).

Currently very few forum users fill in the location field in their profile making if difficult to connect with bitcoiners in your own country or province.  How many Canadians at this forum aren't even aware there is an effort underway to build a BTC<->CAD exchange with interac email transfers?  Perhaps some of them have the technical skills to help make this happen more quickly.  This scenario is likely happening with other countries as well.

I guess country-specific forums could be setup at a different URL, but it would be nice to keep as much of the community at bitcoin.org as possible.  At least until we've grown substantially more.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Just create a "Canada" thread in Local > Other.

I know this because Tyler knows this.

One of the reasons I originally post this request was so that Canadian bitcoiners could discuss creation of a Canada-based exchange.

Well such an exchange has been launched.  Thank you to those who built this site: https://www.cavirtex.com/home
